DURBAN - A Nigerian pastor charged with human trafficking and the rape of young girls is expected to apply for bail appeal before the High Court in Port Elizabeth on Thursday.

The Durban based televangelist faces 22 charges related to contravention of the Sexual Offences Act.

He also faces five additional charges of fraud and being in the country illegally.

On Wednesday, police arrested two women for allegedly recruiting girls for the pastor.

They’re expected to appear in the Port Elizabeth Magistrate’s court on Friday.
